Interesting tidbit about Donald from a 1990 Interview:


"Last April, perhaps in a surge of Czech nationalism, Ivana Trump told her lawyer Michael Kennedy that from time to time her husband reads a book of Hitler's collected speeches, My New Order, which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed ... Hitler's speeches, from his earliest days up through the Phony War of 1939, reveal his extraordinary ability as a master propagandist," Marie Brenner wrote. Hitler was one of history's most prolific orators, building a genocidal Nazi regime with speeches that bewitched audiences. "He learned how to become a charismatic speaker, and people, for whatever reason, became enamored with him," Professor Bruce Loebs, who has taught a class called the Rhetoric of Hitler and Churchill for the past 46 years at Idaho State University, told Business Insider earlier this year. "People were most willing to follow him, because he seemed to have the right answers in a time of enormous economic upheaval." My new order hitler Amazon When Brenner asked Trump about how he came to possess Hitler's speeches, "Trump hesitated" and then said, "Who told you that?" "I don't remember," Brenner reportedly replied. Trump then recalled, "Actually, it was my friend Marty Davis from Paramount who gave me a copy of 'Mein Kampf,' and he's a Jew." Brenner added that Davis did acknowledge that he gave Trump a book about Hitler. "But it was 'My New Order,' Hitler's speeches, not 'Mein Kampf,'" Davis reportedly said. "I thought he would find it interesting. I am his friend, but I'm not Jewish."


In the Vanity Fair article, Ivana Trump told a friend that her husband's cousin, John Walter "clicks his heels and says, 'Heil Hitler," when visiting Trump's office.

To be accurate he's said words to the effect that he's never read a book in his adult life. I'll see if I can find the quote which is probably a tweet. What could a book ever teach him?


As for Hitler speeches? A lot of people have read Mein Kampf without emulating a single one of Adolf's ideas. I know people will want to make him guilty by the association, but it ain't necessarily so. The alleged fact that it was 'speeches' rather than than Mein Kampf suggests he was more interested in how to bend a crowd to his will.

I've read Mein Kemp. It is poorly written pseudoscientific race fiction. How else will you know your enemies if you cannot read their literature?

I found it quite turgid too and ended up skipping pages. The contents page dictated what parts I read and it was enough to get the picture.

It's right to read books that have shaped history.

It all depends what you are reading them for. Trump was very serious about his German heritage..
No one will ever know his intent, but the information is out there.

He now watches the new-age Hitler videos on YouTube. They're a blast!

I'm not a fan of Trump, but let's draw conclusions from what he says and does rather than wondering why he read a book.

Hey everyone --

It wasn't Mein Kamp he kept by his bed.

It was My New Order, which is a book of Hitler's collected speeches.

You know, the big grandiose things he said in front of thousands of Nazis.

So...you all might want to find out what book Trump had by his bed before flippantly disregarding the entire thing.

I find it very telling that there was so much vitriol over a certain former president on this site.. "Saul Alinsky! Communist Manifesto!.."

But when it comes to Trump reading Hitler and being forced into uncomfortable statements about Neo Nazis, the attitude is, "nah, we'll give him the benefit of the doubt."

Very telling..

There is some vital historical knowledge there too.

In his speech to Otto Wels, for instance, he says exactly why and how the Nazi movement grew stronger and stronger until they took power, and why he refused to stop the persecution of the opposition, before enact the Enabling Act. Quoting Schiller he said "Late you come, but still you come". To paraphrase, you want to be allowed to criticize and petition against the Nazi doctrine, but where were you when the opposition was persecuting the Nazis? where were you when he Nazis were "verboten"? "You seem to have totally forgotten that, for years, our shirts were ripped off our backs because you did not approve of the color."

Knowing what happened after, those are words we should dwell on.

Fascinating stuff.

Very telling... Have you not noticed the veritable melt down in progress over this very thing? Very telling, indeed.

The Communist Manifesto is one of the most assigned books in American universities. You have a lot more to worry about than some politician. As for Rules for Radicals, it is a literal guide for activists and community organizers.

Hitler's speeches are a lot like the combination of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump mixed together. I agree with a good bit of what Hitler said (obviously not the arbitrary race hating stuff, total BS, no one can choose how they are born), but very little of what Hitler did was based on his rhetoric, as it is with most politicians. Hitler's speeches were very socialist in nature (the wealthy sacrificing for the good of the people etc.), his actions though were mostly concerned with amalgamating power into his own hands. Hitler was very anti-Zionist, which is in line with a lot of the current Left. And Hitler had a point, but taking it out on average Jews, who by and large were great people, is one of the biggest atrocities in history.

So these guys chanting "Jews will not replace us!" We are calling them "left wing" now?.

How convenient..

He sure was serious about that German heritage...and his genes. Weren't the Nazi's all about selective breeding?
